TO OUR ALUMNI: 

The College extends you a warm invitation to the commencement 
program, beginning with the alumni banquet June 1 and ending with 
the graduation exercises on the afternoon of June 4. 

We are particularly happy to welcome the Golden Anniversary group 
who will be our honored guests throughout the commencement period,, 
Each year brings additional changes in the appearance and perform- 
ance of the institution, and those in the fifty-year group who have 
not visited MCV for several years will find many evidences of this 
evolution. We are sure you will be pleased with the improvements. 

A feature of widespread interest will be the Fourth Medical 
Scientific Assembly on June 2 and 3. Sponsored by the Alumni 
Association and the school of medicine, the assembly is being held 
for the first time during the commencement program, rather than 
in the earlier spring as has been customary. 

The administration, faculty, and student body look forward enthu- 
siastically to your being with us and extend our cordial good wishes 
for a thoroughly enjoyable visit. 






Sincerely yours,

THE SCARAB 




The class of 1911, medicine MCV, loaned by Dr. A. S. Brinkley 

Later, in my senior year, I was fortu- 
nate enough to be elected president of 
the student body and in this position I 
made additional friends in the school of 
pharmacy. 

Through the last fifty years I have 
cherished the association with and the 
friendships made among the professors 
and student body of the Medical College 
of Virginia. 

Now, since I have laid down the scapel, 
I wish to say "Blessed Be the Tie That 
Binds." 

Dr. Henry Evan Davis 

It is a privilege to answer "present" 
when my 1911 class roll is called. I am 
proud to say that my father, John Wilson 
Davis, received his MCV diploma in 
medicine in 1856 and practiced in Spot- 
sylvania County until his death at 91. 
Another graduation- in our family took 
place in 1942, that of my son, Hiram 
Wilson Davis, who is the present Com- 
missioner of Mental Hygiene and Hos- 
pitals in Virginia. 

On June 30, 1915, I was married to 
Maxie Williamson in Williamson, West 
Virginia, and we have two other sons, 
Henry Evan, III, and Robert Lawson, and 
twelve grandchildren. 

Three generations have served during 
the three wars: my father as a surgeon 
in the Civil War; I was in the Army 
Medical Corps in World War I; and 




Hiram was a battalion surgeon with the 
First Army in World War II. 

My most rewarding years in medicine 
were the past fifteen spent at Eastern 
State Hospital in Williamsburg as a psy- 
chiatrist, during which time I became a 
fellow of the American Psychiatric As- 
sociation. 

It is gratifying to all alumni to behold 
the phenomenal growth of MCV under 
the dedicated leadership of Dr. William 
T. Sanger. 

Col. Richard H. Eanes 

I am confident that Doctor Meade Ed- 
munds remembers this. 

It was Christmas, 1908, in my sopho- 
more year at MCV. I was spending the 
holidays with my uncle, Dr. R. E. Wilkin- 
son, M'97, in Dinwiddie County. I was 
taken ill. Early one morning, Dr. Wilkin- 
son prescribed for me and left to make 
a call in Nottoway County. During a 
retching spell, I dislocated both sides of 
the mandible. I knew that Dr. Wilkinson 
would not return until about night, and 
I faced a day of extreme discomfort. 

Thinking this over, I called to my cous- 
in, now Dr. Ernest M. Wilkinson, M'23, 
and explained my predicament. I request- 
ed that he saddle one of the horses and 
ride a couple of miles to the home of the 
father of Meade Edmunds, a classmate, 
and that if he could find Meade there to 
request that he come to see me. It was not 
long before he came. With extreme diffi- 
culty on my part, for I could not talk, we 
two embryo doctors held a consultation. 
I proposed that Meade reduce the dislo- 



Dr. Arthur S. Brinkley 



Dr. Arthur S. Brinkley 

In retrospect the years 1907 to 1911 
spent as a student in the Medical College 
of Virginia were very happy ones for me. 

I have always liked people and I was 
given the opportunity to know more of 
the "student body," when after finishing 
my freshman year Dr. William A. Shep- 
herd, head of the department of histology, 
offered me the position as instructor in 
his department. This enabled me to know 
intimately all the students in medicine 
and dentistry for the following three 
years.

Col. Richard H. Eanes 

cation. He protested that we had not been 
instructed, and he was lacking in experi- 
ence. Nevertheless we got from Dr. Wil- 
kinson's library such books as we thought 
instructive in the case and proceeded to 
try and reduce the joints. He pulled and 
shoved and wrenched and still the dislo- 
cation was the same. Finally we gave up 
and Meade left me to await the return 
of Dr. Wilkinson. 

It was about night when I heard him 
drive up on the lawn. Then I heard some 
conversation and I knew that the cousin 
was relating my sad story. My uncle let 
out a roar and laughing loudly came up 
the steps, two at a time. With one glance 
at me, and before I could try to speak, 
he was astride me, both his thumbs were 
in my mouth. There was just one little 
practiced twist and my troubles were over. 
Contrary to predictions made at the time, 
there has never been a recurrence. 

Dr. Meade C. Edmunds 

A well remembered incident of my col- 
lege days was the night of graduation. 
We were celebrating up and down Broad 
Street, and at that time alcohol was sold 
by the drink. No one wanted to serve me 
because I was accused of being under 
twenty-one. After much persuasion and 
verification by some of my classmates, I 
was successful in getting a few beers and 
an occasional highball before the night 
was over. It is just too bad that I could 
not have added a few years then and 
could subtract a few more now. 



Dr. George E. Nance 

I interned at Memorial Hospital, Rich- 
mond, Virginia, in 1912. After practicing 
for one year in the coal fields at Pocahon- 
tas, Virginia, I did some relief work for 
other doctors in North Carolina and 
Kents Store, Virginia, during 1914. In 
1915, I did what most doctors prefer not 
to do — located in my native county of 




Dr. George E. Nance 

Charles City, Virginia. I continued to 
practice in this territory for twenty-two 
years until forced to retire in 1938 be- 
cause of disability from chronic arthritis. 
.For the last thirty years I have resided in 
eastern Henrico County, at Varina. 





Dr. Meade C. Edmunds 



Dr. J. Henry Cutchin, Jr. 

Dr. J. Henry Cutchin, Jr. 

After graduating from UCM in May, 
1911, I served fifteen months as an intern 
in the Virginia Hospital, Richmond, and 
St. Vincent's Hospital, Norfolk. 

With great pleasure and deep apprecia- 
tion, I recall associations with doctors, 
nurses, and students and their efforts to 
expose me to medicine. How well I re- 
member "operations on watermelons" fol- 
lowing regular operations in the old Vir- 
ginia Hospital! Also remembered is the 
front porch upstairs with nurses and con- 
valescent patients when the moon was not 
too bright! Good old days! 

Except for twenty months in the U. S. 
Army in France during World War I, my 
practice has been in Whitakers, North 
Carolina, and surrounding territory in 
three counties. 

I trust I have, to some small degree, 
merited the confidence placed in me as 
I have endeavored to serve as a physician, 
official in the local Methodist Church, 
Masonic Lodge, Nash County Board of 
Health, trustee of High Point College, 
and trustee of the Methodist Retirement 
Home. According to information received, 
mine was the first life membership for 
alumni. This has since been discontinued. 

I challenge members of the class of 
1911 to meet at commencement, 1961, to 
relive happy experiences. Our wives (bless 
'em) may find joy in conversation regard- 
ing grandchildren. (We have six — the 
best of all — endorsed by two grand- 
mothers ! ) 

THE SCARAB 




Dr. Aubrey A. Houser 

Dr. Aubrey A. Houser 

It is a pleasant experience to participate 
in an anniversary of any event that allows 
us to pause and contemplate our mistakes 
and consolidate our wisdom. 

As a member of the class of 1911, I 
experienced associations that stimulated 
my desire to move forward. I am proud 
to be here and not there. 

The knowledge we gain, after earning 
the privilege of participating in this anni- 
versary, prepares us to make the future 
more productive than the past. 

Dr. Randolph E. Watts 

After graduating I practiced in North 
Carolina until World War I. I volun- 
teered and was a first lieutenant at Fort 
Bouregard, Louisiana, my first station. 
From there I was transferred to the Army 
Hospital at Fort Bayard, New Mexico, 
and was clinical director there when I 
resigned in 1919 to do private practice in 
the Silver City, New Mexico, area. In 
1938 the Watts Clinic was organized and 
two years ago we organized the Watts 
Clinic and Hospital Foundation for the 
benefit of this community after I pass on. 

My wife, Amber Garrett Watts, is still 
living. We have two children, David, 
safety engineer at the White Sands Missile 
Proving Grounds, and June, who is teach- 
ing English in Concord, California. 

An amusing incident in my career con- 
cerns one of our local "characters." This 
lady now comes to our clinic quite regu- 
larly; but on her first visit, which was for 
an initial obstetrical examination, no one 
knew that she was a "she" and not a 

MAY, 1961 



"he." Her dress was male attire from 
head to foot. She had a man's haircut, 
wore trousers, shirt, lumber jacket, men's 
shoes, socks, and even underwear. The 
receptionist registered her as a man which 
was quite understandable. She was accom- 
panied by another "man" who later 




Dr. Randolph E. Watts 

turned out to be her husband. I saw the 
patient, thinking all the while that she 
was a man, until she removed her shirt 
which disclosed a rather large bosom. 
After I overcame my first shock I natural- 
ly did a pelvic and found that she was 
gravid. The climax to this story is that 
when I went out into the nurse's station 
where the husband was waiting, I said to 
him, "Everything is going to be all right 
— your husband is going to have a baby." 





Dr. J. Grover Raby 



Dr. Julius J. Hulcher 

Dr. Julius J. Hulcher 

In my fifty years of practice probably 
the most outstanding change is the disap- 
pearance of the old family doctor. This, 
in my opinion, is a great tragedy. I pride 
myself on being one of the few left. It is 
regrettable to me that we have allowed this 
condition to progress so rapidly, and I 
feel there is nothing that can be done to 
remedy this situation. This is truly a great 
loss to the patient as well as the physician. 
I thank heaven that I am still one of the 
old family doctors. 

Dr. J. Grover Raby 

After getting my doctor's degree in 
medicine in 1911 and passing the North 
Carolina and Virginia State Boards, I 
settled at Tarboro, North Carolina, in 
May, 1912, and did solo practice, except 
for the thirteen months when I was in the 
United States Army Service in 1918 and 
1919, until January, 1929. At this time, I 
with four other M.D.'s organized The 
Tarboro Clinic. I have been doing group 
practice with this group nearly thirty-two 
years. 

One of my greatest satisfactions derives 
from having been a part of this group 
and bringing to the people of this com- 
munity -a medical service better than any 
one of us or all of us could have given 
doing solo practice. 

I still work as hard as ever, about as 
many hours per day and enjoy doing it. 
We now have a group of nine, three of 
whom are specialists. We have added to 
one hospital and organized and built 
another one in the meantime. 




Dr. Henry Clay Smith 

Dr. Henry Clay Smith 

I could write a book about MCV and 
all the helpful things those associated 
with it did for me. Few are living, but if 
all were, I would head my visiting list 
with: 

(1) Dr. William H. Taylpr, professor 
of chemistry and medical jurisprudence, 
whose knowledge, friendly manner, and 
dry humor made him one of the most 
beloved characters I have ever known. He 
said students came in with certificates 
telling what they knew about chemistry; 
but he always assumed they did not know 
anything and he never had been mistaken. 

(2) I would visit Ralph McCauley, 
known to everyone as "Mac," who was a 
friend to everyone and gave his whole 
life to MCV. 

(3) I would visit Chris Baker, the 
colored janitor, who spent the greater part 
of his life at MCV. I never went around 
him but that he asked if he could do 
anything for me. Many times he locked 
me in with the mounted specimens to 
study, and, when other students wanted 
to go in, he would tell them he had posi- 
tive orders from the dean not to let any 
student in without his professor. 

We should never forget such friends ! 

Mrs. Elizabeth A. Baird 

I will not be able to attend the reunion 
exercises since my health is not good. I 
am very proud to say that I am a fifty- 
year graduate. I loved every brick in the 
old Virginia Hospital and I have some 
very fond recollections of training days. 



Dr. Matthew J. Connell 

I married Leray Rowe of Richmond, 
Virginia, and six members of our family 
are alumni of the Medical College of Vir- 
ginia; my son, Matthew J. Connell, Jr., 
D'37, Richmond, Virginia; my daughter, 
Margaret Leray Connell Draffin, D'4l, 
Richmond, Virginia, and Columbia, South 
Carolina; my three sons-in-law, Tyler 




Dr. Matthew J. Connell 

Robert Boling, M'31, Tazewell County, 
Virginia (deceased) ; William C Draffin, 
D'4l, Columbia, South Carolina, who is 
currently president of the South Carolina 
State Dental Society; and Donald F. Bunn, 
D'46, Raleigh, North Carolina, and Rich- 
mond, Virginia. 

I am a member of the Richmond Den- 
tal Society, Virginia State Dental Society, 
American Dental Society, and Xi Psi Phi 
Dental Fraternity. My hobbies are hunting 
and shooting, and I have won Expert 
Medal Virginia in pistol shooting, 1938, 
also the Richmond City Championship 
trophy in skeet shooting, December 7, 
1941 . 1 was formerly president of the Cava- 
lier Rifle and Pistol Club, Richmond Re- 
volver and Pistol League (6 years), and 
Richmond Trap and Skeet Club. I was 1st 
Lieutenant in the 408th Cavalry Reserve. 

My clubs are the Elks, Izaak Walton 
League, Saints and Sinners, and Honorary 
K. C. 

Having had the pleasure of visiting the 
College during Homecoming recently and 
seeing the modern facilities and excellent 
equipment and fine dental faculty, I feel 
that any man should be happy to be a 
student of MCV today. 




Dr. W. Paul Speas 

Dr. W. Paul Speas 

We have been asked to describe some 
interesting experiences while students at 
Richmond or during the years since that 
time. To me all life has been an inter- 
esting experience. From the time we en- 
tered U.C.M. till now has been a continu- 
ous series of experiences, all interesting, 
some happy, others not so good; some I 
look back on with a great deal of pleas- 
ure, others with regret. As a whole, I 
would say it has been good to live and 
to devote my life to the practice of medi- 
cine. Some details would be different if it 
all were to be done over again, but the 
practice of medicine still would be my 
life work. 

After graduation I did six years general 
practice in Davie County, North Carolina. 
During that time I did graduate work in 
eye, ear, nose, and throat in Baltimore 
and Chicago. 

In 1917 I moved to Hickory, N. C. 
where I limited my work to eye, ear, nose, 
and throat for fourteen years. During that 
period I did two years of graduate work 
in ophthalmology at the graduate school 
of medicine, University of Pennsylvania. 

In 1931 I came to Winston-Salem 
where I have limited my work to ophthal- 
mology and still am actively engaged in 
practice. 

I wish to urge that as many of our class 
as possible get together at Richmond in 
June. There we can hear one another's ex- 
periences. This should be a happy occa- 
sion for every living member of our class.

Dr. James B. Whittington 

After receiving his M.D. degree from 
the North Carolina Medical College in 
1911, Dr. Whittington married Lisa Mad- 
ison Shepherd of Madison County, Vir- 
ginia; and, at the end of his internship, 
he settled in Winston-Salem, North Car- 
olina. 

After several years of general practice, 
he practiced surgery from 1919 to 1924 
during which time he took postgraduate 
work at the Mayo Clinic and the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania. In 1924, he took 
the position of medical director and ad- 
ministrator of the Winston-Salem City 
Memorial Hospital. It is in this field of 
hospital administration, a complex and 
highly specialized branch of service that 
he has been most widely recognized. In 
1946 he also assumed the administration 
of Kate Bitting Reynolds Memorial as 
well. 

He has been most active in the Shrine 
and became illustrious potentate of Oasis 
Temple and was elected Imperial repre- 
sentative to the Imperial Council in 1931. 
In January of 1950, he was written up in 
Desert Dust, the publication of Oasis 
Temple. We quote: "Yet no picture of 
the man can be complete without a 
glimpse beyond the record of achievement 
that is conveyed by the impressive list of 
organizations to which he belongs. One 
would have to see him — his six foot three

pounds of flesh — to understand that his 
breadth of mind is matched by body pro-

Dr. Allie D. Morgan 

I remember most of all how nice the 
faculty was to me in getting my studies 
arranged. After finishing my first two 
years of medicine at Wake Forest I went 
to the University College of Medicine to 
complete my last two years. In a few 
weeks I was fortunate enough to get a 
job teaching laboratory work in the bi- 
ology department at Richmond College 
one afternoon a week. Also on weekends, 
I corrected English composition papers 
for the Womans College of Richmond. 
This extra work enabled me to pay my 
expenses for my last two years. 

During my senior year our college 
burned. The school kept the obstetrical 
clinic where it was my job to see that the 
boys went out on cases when calls came 
in. I also roomed there. When the two 
colleges consolidated, we also got a diplo- 
ma from the Medical College of Virginia. 

Dr. Albert U. Tieche 

Fifty years is a long time to recall many 
of the events of 1907 to 1911, especially 
as these years embrace a considerable 
amount of confusion due to the uncer- 
tainty of the average medical student 




Dr. Albert U. Tieche 

(will I be able to make the four years 
and if so, will I be a success as a doc- 
tor?). 

Following 1911, I completed one year 
of internship and one year of residency. 
After several years in general practice, I 
then returned to hospital work to special- 
ize in the field of surgery which I have 
pursued for the past thirty-five years. My 
associate and I built the Beckley and Oak 
Hill Hospitals consisting of 225 beds. 
Both hospitals are now in operation; how- 
ever, I have turned a large part of the 
work over to a group of younger men on 
our staff, which consists of fifteen full- 
time men. 

Being in the heart of the smokeless 
coal field, I naturally became interested in 
the coal industry, but disposed of my in- 
terest in this field several years ago. I am 
now spending most of my time in farm- 
ing and the banking business. 

I am a member of the Presbyterian 
Church, a 32nd Degree Mason, a member 
of the Elks Clubs, Rotary Club, and the 
following medical associations: West Vir- 
ginia State Medical Association, Ameri- 
can Medical Association, fellow of Ameri- 
can College of Surgeons, fellow of Inter- 
national College of Surgeons, fellow of 
Southeastern Surgical Congress, Southern 
Medical Association, World Medical As- 
sociation, American Association of Rail- 
road Surgeons, Association of American 
Physicians & Surgeons, and American 
Academy of Hospital Administrators. 

Luck and good wishes to the Class of 
1911 and I hope that I may have the 
pleasure of seeing you in June. 







Dr. L. Ray Temple 

Dr. L. Ray Temple 

I vividly recall two incidents of my col- 
lege days. Dr. Frasia Jones, professor of 
practical anatomy, a very exacting quiz 
master, on this particular occasion was 
late. A medical student by the name of 
Bowles hid himself in a corner and start- 
ed calling the roll. He could mimic Dr. 
Jones to perfection and all the students 
rushed to the dissecting table. 

Dear old Dr. Taylor was the city coro- 
ner, whose inorganic chemistry lecture 
came after mid-day lunch (the sleepy time 
of day) , during which many of the students 
would fall asleep. Dr. Taylor with his 
thick spy glass would look around and tell 
the boys, "Sleep on, but you will have to 
wake up on examination." 




Dr. William H. Taylor was loved by 
everybody. I have two of his published 
books, Principals and Practice, and Funda- 
mental Facts, which are among my cher- 
ished possessions.

Dr. Walter H. Wunder 
Dr. Walter H. Wunder 

I remember my first extraction. Early in 
my freshman year a man came to the in- 
firmary for an extraction. All of the jun- 
iors and seniors being busy, I was told to 
extract it. It was a lower first molar and 
he did not want an anesthetic. When I 
applied the forceps to the tooth and got a 
good grip, his feet flew in the air and 
with a twist of his body he rolled out of 
the chair. I hung on to the forceps and 
when he hit the floor I had the tooth — I 
do not know how, but get it, I did ! 

It was at the age of fourteen that I be- 
gan paying special attention to the girl I 
thought then, and still think, was and is 
the only girl for me. We expected to be 
married soon after my graduation, so dur- 
ing my senior year at college I decided to 
make the wedding ring for her. I made a 
wax pattern and cast the ring just as I 
had cast inlays or crowns. She has been 
wearing it almost fifty years. We hope to 
celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary 
on July 26, 1961. 

Dr. David P. Scott 

I remember many things about Rich- 
mond; the Medical College of Virginia, 
in that rather long ago time; the men in 
my class and the other classes; and most 
of all about the men who taught us. At 
that time MCV was somewhat short on 
equipment; but, for whatever they were 



Dr. David P. Scott 



short on in equipment, they more than 
made up in the capability of the faculty. 
They were as someone said about Solo- 
mon, 

"Solomon was sapient 
And Solomon was wise 
And Solomon was marvelously 
Wide between the eyes." 
Well, these old boys were wide be- 
tween the eyes. It was the beginning of 
specialization in Richmond. Dr. Douglas 
Vanderhoof was the first internist in Rich- 
mond, Dr. Claude Coleman was the first 
man to do brain surgery, and so on down 
the line. These were individuals who dis- 
tinguished themselves in the years that 
came after and who were capable men 
with a strong interest in their students.

Dr. Harry Harrison 

Dr. Harry Harrison 

After graduating from MCV in 1911, 
Dr. Harrison accepted an appointment for 
internship at Sarah Leigh Hospital in 
Norfolk, Virginia. Intending to return to 
practice in his native North Carolina, Dr. 
Southgate Leigh persuaded him to stay 
on with the Sarah Leigh Clinic where he 
was associated with Drs. Leigh, Graves, 
Culpeper, and later Dr. Rinker. He re- 
mained as anaesthetist and associate un- 
til the hospital reorganized in 1932 and 
is still associated with the Leigh Memorial 
Hospital as a staff member, as well as 
being on the staff of the Norfolk General 
and DePaul Hospital in Norfolk. 

In 1917 he married Harriette Kohn, 
who passed away in March of 1958. He 




has three sons, Harry, Jr., William and 
Stanleigh, as well as four grandchildren. 
In 1930, Dr. Harrison opened offices in 
the Medical Science Building in Norfolk 
and still keeps a heavy schedule of ap- 
pointments. His fifty years of practice 
have brought many interesting and re- 
warding experiences. His mail is heavy 
with cards and small gifts from patients 
all over the world, who have moved away 
and not forgotten Dr. Harrison's kind- 
ness. Young women he delivered come in 
after years away from Norfolk to show 
their children to "Doc." Old patients 
would not think of passing through with- 
out stopping to say hello.

Dr. Lawence D. Floyd 

Dr. Lawrence D. Floyd 

I have never liked or wanted publicity 
and would not attend medical society 
meetings when officers were to be elected. 
I was satisfied to be of service to my many 
patients. I do not believe in long vaca- 
tions. I have been blessed with wonderful 
health and have not lost a month out of 
my fifty years from sickness. 

I am pleased with both my professional 
and business efforts, and most of all, my 
many friends. 

Miss Anne Cabell Stephenson 

I went into training at the old Virginia 
Hospital when I was eighteen years of 
age, and was a green mountain girl who 
thought that babies came in doctors' satch- 
els. I was sent out in town one night to 
help one of the staff doctors with an ob- 
stetrical case when I had nevei seen a 
case and had just had a few lectures. 
When I arrived at the home I told him 




Miss Anne C. Stephenson 



the situation and he said, "My God, just 
don't let the family know, they have a 
good old mammy and you can give the 
anesthetic." 

Going back to the hospital at 3 A.M. 
he laughed all the way, and when I asked 
him what was the matter he said, "Girl, I 
will never forget your expression. You 
had better go back to the mountains where 
you came from; you are so green it is a 
wonder the cows haven't eaten you up." 

There was a wonderful staff of doctors 
at the Virginia Hospital, and the most 
beloved was Dr. Edward McGuire, affec- 
tionately known as "Dr. Ned," and the 
most attractive was Dr. Garnett Nelson. 

I loved the old place and my three 
years in training.

Miss Carrie Mae Copenhaver 

Miss Carrie Mae Copenhaver 

A native of Smyth County, I have made 
Richmond my home since I entered train- 
ing. I have been a member of First Eng- 
lish Lutheran Church for fifty years. 

I was one of the fifteen graduates in 
the class of 1911 at Memorial Hospital. 
After doing institutional work and private 
duty nursing for several years, I went 
into public health nursing with the Rich- 
mond Public Schools. 

In 1917, I joined Base Hospital #45 
and served in Texas and in France. After 
returning to the States, I was with the 
Red Cross for two years. An opportunity 
then came to go to China as a nurse un- 
der the joint sponsorship of the Rockefel- 
ler Foundation and the Methodist Mis- 




Mr. Joseph A. Sollod 



sion Board. War came soon after my ar- 
rival there, and a most interesting experi- 
ence was brought to a close with my re- 
turn to the United States. 

Following the depression, I, like others, 
found myself in the midst of World War 
II and served my country as a nurse and 
counselor during the war years. Following 
this experience, my age forced me to re- 
tire, and since my retirement I have en- 
joyed sharing with my family and friends 
my cottage and garden. I consider my 
friends one of my greatest blessings. 

I can truthfully say that I have fought 
a good fight and have had many reward- 
ing experiences. Mine has been a full life 
which I have enjoyed and would be will- 
ing to relive. 

Mr. Joseph A. Sollod 

Over fifty years ago I struggled to be- 
come a pharmacist. The Medical College 
of Virginia was kind and accepted me as 
a student. I remember so well that at the 
time of my graduation, Wortley F. Rudd, 
dean of the pharmacy department, tried 
his best to convince me that I should go 
into medicine because he believed that 
as a physician I would be very successful. 
I should have listened to him. 

Yet as clerk and owner of a drug store 
I was successful, which was probably due 
to the rigid studies I had at the M.C.V. 

I have a wife, one son, two daughters, 
and six grandchildren. 

In February, 1955, I sold my drug 
store but I still do a little relief work as 
a pharmacist once in a while. 

Mr. Harlow M. Surface 

I am still active in pharmacy at the age 
of 76. I remember that when I was initi- 
ated into my fraternity I was put in the 
dark dissecting room alone; the memory 
will always stay with me — also the odor. 
Next morning a colored finger was found 
in my pocket and I threw it in the waste 
basket in my room where the maid found 
it; she never would come around when we 
were in the room. 

Mr. Allen Ashby Arnold 

It doesn't seem that fifty years have 
passed since I attended the University 
College of Medicine. Association with 
such men of the faculty as Doctors Wortley 
F. Rudd, Roshier Miller, Albert Bolen- 
baugh, George E. Barksdale, and the class 
of 1911 made the two years very pleasant. 

Then, coming to a small community 
and opening the first drug store here has 
filled my life with many unusual experi- 





Mr. Harlow M. Surface 

ences. The first fifteen years preceded the 
coming of our hospital, and the two doc- 
tors were kept busy. During their ab- 
sences I was called upon to do anything 
from minor surgery to setting broken 
bones. 

If I had the time, I could relate many 
amusing experiences, such as sewing up 
a man's jaw, cut from ear to mouth and 
having him return in a week, without 
having followed my advice to see a doc- 
tor at once. The scar wasn't bad. 

To any young man seeking a full, hap- 
py future, I advise him to serve to the 
best of his ability some rural community 
as its pharmacist, where he knows every- 
one by name. I am now starting on a 
fifth generation in this capacity.

Mrs. Victoria Leo Powell Lipscomb 

Mrs. Victoria. Leo Powell Lipscomb 

I had never thought about nursing as 
a career until Dr. Jacob Michaux, our 
family doctor, asked me to go into train- 
ing at his little hospital on the Boulevard, 
the William Byrd. I wonder how many 
people remember that hospital. I trained 
one year there and sad was the day when 
we were told the hospital was closing. 

I then entered Virginia Hospital for 
my three years training. Our class started 
with 22 and one by one they left so that 
when we finished there were only 14. 
This was, however, the largest class to 
graduate. 

During my intermediate year, one of 
our nurses said to me, "I'm celebrating 
my 25th year as a graduate." 

I looked amazed and said, "Twenty- 
five years, that's a long time." Little did 
I think I would one day be celebrating 
my 50th year, but alas and alack, 'tis here! 

I have been so happy in my work and 
have kept a record of every patient since 
1911. The nicest thing happened to me 
last year. I nursed an ill patient for five 
weeks and about a month later received 
a beautiful letter of appreciation from

on my patient. This letter I'll always treas- 
ure. I plan to continue my work. 

I trust my classmates will.be back for 
the reunion; what joy it would be to talk 
about our training. Here's hop ng I hear 
from some of "the girls." 

Dr. Fontaine Graham Jarman 

I graduated from UCM in 1911 in 
medicine. There are many things I re- 
member during my student days but one 
of the worst which comes to my mind wa; 
the morning when I went down to attend 
classes and there was nothing there but a 
small ring of ashes and a sign which car- 
ried this message, "Classes will be re- 
sumed at 9 A.M. tomorrow" but did not 
say where they would be held. 

We attended classes in many places in 
Richmond while they were partitioning 
the old tobacco warehouse for classrooms.

Fond memories will linger on of the

their wives and friends met at the Common-

Dr. Edward S. Carr 

I recall a little instance while doing re- 
lief work in Richlands, Virginia. I was 
called out one night to see an old lady 
with a fractured hip. A hypo was given 
to relieve the severe pain. A few minutes 
passed and she spoke up, "Doctor, I can- 
not see." 

I looked across the room and saw hang- 
ing on the wall a mountain rifle. The 
thought flashed through my mind that if 
this old lady dies, her husband will shoot 
me before I can get out. If you know 
those mountain people, they mean busi- 
ness. Lucky for me, the Lord must have 
been very close around for she was soon 
OK. Nevertheless at that time, I wished 
I had never seen a medical college. 

From 1911 to 1956, I delivered around 
five thousand babies. Five single deliveries 
in 24 hours was tops. Customary fee in 
Giles County for many years ranged from 
$20 to §35. Often a Virginia ham was 
the first payment on the baby. 

One night an attempt was made to rob 
me, reaching from behind for a vital spot, 
caused the guy to feel sorry for an old 
man, costing him ten years in prison.

It has been brought to the attention of the Alumni Association of the Medical College of Virginia Board of Trus- 
tees, that many of the 9,000 alumni, into whose hands this publication goes, wish to express their views and construc- 
tive criticism about the College through the columns of this magazine. We of the Editorial Staff wish to offer two 
columns in every issue in which you may express yourself to your fellow alumni and to the administration of the 
College. These columns as above will bear the caption "Voice of the Alumni." Space will not permit long and exten- 
sive communications to be published. We welcome letters about the College and inquiries of the same if not more than 
250 words. Your letters should be brief, concise, and clear whether it be an inquiry or a statement of fact. All such 
correspondence should be dated and signed. It must remain the authority of the Editorial Board to choose those com- 
munications that will be published, and those not published will be returned to the author with an adequate explanation 
why it has not been entered for publication. Those letters chosen for publication will be published according to the 
date they were received. Let them come.

School of Medicine 

A little more than a year ago today the 
artist's rendering of the proposed Medi- 
cal Education Building occupied the cov- 
er of The Scarab. Now, one year later, 
March 30, 1961, the contract was signed 
with the Blake Construction Company of 
Washington for the construction of this 
building. The total cost of the building 
will exceed $6,000,000 and includes $4,- 
400,000 in State funds and more than 
Si, 600,000 in Federal funds. The low 
bid exceeded the money originally avail- 
able but construction was finally made 
possible by a supplemental grant from 
the Federal Health Research Facilities 
Council of §250,000. This was made on 
the basis of increased devotion of areas 
of the building to investigate laboratory 
usage since the original plans were sub- 
mitted to the Council over a year and 
one-half ago. 

Not only was the Blake Construction 
Company the low bidder but it also esti- 
mated the completion of construction in 
the shortest time. They have assured us 
that they expect to have the building com- 
pleted in the spring of 1962 — next year! 
Construction began April 10, 1961. 

Selection of the medical students for 
the class beginning in the fall of 1961 
has been completed. The class includes 
84 students, 5 of whom are women, and 
69 of whom are Virginia residents. This 
class was 'selected from about the same 
number of applicants as in the past three 
or four years. It is pleasing to report that 
the quality over-all of this applicant group 
seems to be slightly higher this year. 

Matching for internships has also been 
completed. This year 85 per cent of our 
senior class obtained their first choice 
under the National Intern Matching Plan. 
Eighty-eight are interning in hospitals in 
20 states and the District of Columbia. 
Thirty-six of these are interning in Vir- 
ginia; 70 chose a rotating experience; 10, 
straight medicine; 7, straight surgery; and 
1, straight pediatrics. 

William M. Maloney, dean 

School of Pharmacy 

This fall will mark the real beginning 
of the five-year program in pharmacy. As 
you know, we offer four of the five years 
required here at MCV. At the moment 
we have a small group of students who 
are the first of the five-year group but 
1961 is the first year we can admit larger 
numbers of students.

Deans' Page 



Basic pre-pharmacy requirements are 
32 semester hours of creditable work at 
an accredited institution of higher learn- 
ing. These 32 hours must include either 
8 semester hours of biology or chemistry, 
6 semester hours of English (composition 
and grammar), 6 semester hours of math- 
ematics (algebra and trigonometry), and 
12 semester hours of electives other than 
the physical sciences. We are still accept- 
ing students who are eligible and will be 
happy to consider the applications of 
young men and women now enrolled in 
their first college year. 

Our graduating classes for 1961, 1962, 
and 1963 will be of normal size (around 
55 to 65 students). We know that 1964 
will be a slim year because we will have 
about 15 or 20 in the group. Our ability 
to provide pharmacists in 1965 in our 
usual number greatly depends upon the 
number of students we enroll this fall. 
A critical shortage could develop if we 
have several years of reduced numbers of 
graduates. Therefore, I bespeak your help 
and cooperation which we have enjoyed 
in the past in seeking out qualified appli- 
cants. 

Warren E. Weaver, dean 

School of Dentistry 

February 1961 
Dear Dental Alumnus: 

We celebrated our 10th anniversary 
dental alumni HOMECOMING on Janu- 
ary 30 and 31. In the ten years since we 
staged our first HOMECOMING this an- 
nual affair has developed great stature. 
We note with satisfaction that many class 
reunions are held and several committees 
of the Virginia State Dental Association 
meet in conjunction with our HOME- 
COMING. The scientific program this 
year was especially appealing to general 
practitioners. The banquet entertainment 
was, by general acclaim, the best yet — 
hilariously humorous and clever! We 
registered 493 alumni and wives. Those 
who did not attend missed a meeting of 
great professional and social value. 

We announce with keen gratitude the 



establishment of the Samuel and Fannie 
Myers Memorial Dental Lectureship en- 
dowed by their son, Edward Myers, D'26, 
by a gift of $10,000. This endowment 
will be held in perpetuity and its income 
will be used to support special lecture 
programs designed to enrich our profes- 
sional knowledge. One cannot conceive 
of a more admirable way to memorialize 
.noble parents. Dr. Myers is currently serv- 
ing on our Board of Visitors. 

Our faculty continues to make news of 
national importance by notable contribu- 
tions to research literature and addresses 
before many large dental societies. Espe- 
cially noteworthy: Dr. H. T. Knighton, 
president of the International Association 
for Dental Research, presided over the 
recent annual session of the Association. 

Dr. Charles M. Heartwell, Jr., D'31, 
Capt, USN, DC, retired, joined our faculty 
on the first of January as associate profes- 
sor of denture prosthesis. Dr. Heartwell 
is a diplomate of the American Board of 
Prosthodontics and has had extensive ex- 
perience in postgraduate teaching during 
his illustrious career in the U. S. Navy 
Dental Corps. 

Dr. J. Marvin Reynolds, D'51, has been 
appointed associate professor of crown 
and bridge prosthodontics and will join 
our faculty next July 1. Dr. Reynolds is 
currently on the dental faculty of West 
Virginia University. 

Equipment in the news at MCV: (1) 
We have just installed a Panorex X-ray 
machine — the first one in a dental school. 
This newly developed apparatus exposes 
the entire dental field — both jaws', all 
teeth, temporo-mandibular joints and ad- 
joining sinuses — on one film. While its 
exact value is yet- to be determined it is 
particularly useful in making X-ray sur- 
veys of children and edentulous patients. 
(2) Our new television equipment is now 
in operation — a closed circuit system with 
two cameras, a control panel and two 
large receivers in each of our lecture 
rooms. This modern TV teaching aid, 
which may revolutionize dental educa- 
tion, is ours by virtue of a State appropri- 
ation supplemented by a magnificent gift 
from a non-dental benefactor who re- 
quests anonymity. 

The faculty and staff join me in best 
wishes, always. 

Sincerely, 
Harry Lyons, dean

Valley Chapter 

Scheduled to meet on January 26, 1961, 
the Valley Chapter meeting had to be 
postponed — the snows came ! With Hunt- 
er Gaunt, P'26, the chairman, stewing in 
Winchester, and the Richmond delegation 
having "nervous prostrations" with con- 
tinual calls to the weather bureau and 
highway department, we re-scheduled the 
meeting for the following week. That 
week the same rigamarole, but have the 
meeting we did, and what a fine group 
turned out and what a wonderful time 
we all had. Hunter, with the help of his 
charming wife, Elsie Mae, had planned 
a delightful cocktail hour and dinner. 

The delegation from Richmond of Dr. 
W. C. Henderson, D'37, president of the 
Alumni Association; Mr. Ralph M. Ware, 
P'42, member of the Board of Trustees; 
Mr. Carter O. Lowance, assistant presi- 
dent of MCV; Dr. Warren E. Weaver, 
dean of pharmacy; Dr. Max D. Largent, 
D'50, associate professor of pedodonics; 
and the executive secretary were impressed 
by the interest and enthusiasm shown by 
the group. Their suggestions for the chap- 
ter were most interesting. 

Elected to office were Mr. Hunter M. 
Gaunt, P'26, Winchester, president; Dr. 
C. V. Townsend, M'49, Martinsburg, first 
vice-president; Dr. Leon Slavin, D'31, 
Winchester, second vice-president; Mr. 
Carl Parrish, associate in hospital admini- 
tration, Front Royal, third vice-president; 
and Mrs. John Hoover, N'35, Winchester, 
secretary-treasurer. 

The chapter decreed two meetings a 
year which the Richmond delegation will 
look forward to (without snow) ! 

Florida West Coast Chapter 

This is to report our successful dinner 
meeting of the Florida West Coast Chap- 
ter of the MCV alumni. This was held on 
March 2, 1961, at the Tampa Terrace 
Hotel, and guests included Dr. and Mrs. 
R. Blackwell Smith, Jr., president of MCV, 
and Dr. and Mrs. Richard Michaux, im- 
mediate past president of the Alumni As- 
sociation of MCV. 

In addition to these guests, the follow- 
ing were in attendance: Dr. and Mrs. J.

cent R. Trapazzano, St. Petersburg, Flori- 
da; Dr. Clenton Whitehurst, Land 
O'Lakes, Florida; Dr. Richard A. Bagby, 
Tampa, Florida; Dr. Richard C. Neale, 
Jr., Tampa, Florida; and Dr. and Mrs. 
Hawley H. Seiler, Tampa, Florida.

Hawley H. Seiler, Dr. R. Blackwell Smith, Jr. 

There was a total of 18 people present. 
Several others had made reservations but 
at the last minute were apparently un- 
able to attend. It was decided to form a 
Florida West Coast Chapter and the fol- 
lowing officers were elected: president, 
Dr. Hawley H. Seiler; vice-president, Dr. 
Paul A. Tanner, Jr.; secretary, Mr. 
Graham F. Hendley. 

A very nice talk was given by Dr. 
Smith in which he outlined recent prog- 
ress at MCV. We were all interested to 
hear of the advances which are now go- 
ing on.

Roanoke Chapter 

Some 75 of our alumni, including 
wives, of the Roanoke Chapter defied the 
heavy rain and made it enthusiastically to 
the impressive dinner at the Shenandoah 
Club on March 21st. 

The social hour apparently met all in- 
troductory requirements for the good food 
and continued good fellowship of the 
dinner hour. 

Everyone seemed to be proud of the 
large increase of attendance over last year. 
Dr. George W. Hurt's leadership as pres- 
ident this past year was evident. 

Of course. Dr. W. C. Henderson, pres- 
ident of our general alumni association, 
and Mrs. Henderson were on hand. He 
brought greetings, good wishes, and set 
forth plans for the 1961 commencement

School of Graduate Studies 

This academic year began with a total 
enrollment in the school of graduate 
studies of forty students actually in resi- 
dence. As in the previous few years, the 
majority of graduate students are work- 
ing for the degree of doctor of philoso- 
phy. It is expected that on commence- 
ment day, June 4, 1961, four graduate 
students will receive the degree of doctor 
of philosophy or master of science. 

With each succeeding year, the gradu- 
ate program continues to grow and play 
an ever increasing part in the life of the 
College as a whole. In each of the de- 
partments offering a graduate course, the 
education of graduate students serves to 
enhance the quality and scope of the edu- 
cational effort and to stimulate an investi- 
gative point of view. 

The graduate student body organization 
continues to be active and this year has 
sponsored a seminar to which well-known 
scientists have been invited. 

Established under the present constitu- 
tion in 1957, the school of graduate 
studies functions through an organiza- 



tion composed of the dean, the graduate 
council, departmental chairmen, and the 
graduate faculty. This year the graduate 
faculty will begin its formal meetings as 
a faculty, the first meeting being sched- 
uled for May 3. The graduate faculty con- 
sists of members of the faculty of the 
Medical College of Virginia who are as- 
signed to responsibilities in the school of 
graduate studies.

School of Hospital 
Administration 

The committee on admissions has again 
discharged its arduous task of selecting 
fourteen students for the class to enter 
in September, 1961. The number of ap- 
plications processed totaled 73. Sixty ap- 
plicants came to Richmond for interviews, 
the longest trip being made by an appli- 
cant from Utah. From these interviewed 
thirteen have been appointed, plus one 
other assigned to the school by the air 
force. One other student is to come to the 
school from South America under the 
sponsorship of the W. K. Kellogg Foun- 
dation. 

Applicants appointed and their home 
addresses are Dr. Ruben Nue, Tarma, 



Peru; Henry Barner, State College, Penn- 
sylvania; John Conroy, Gainesville, Flori- 
da; Lloyd Hamilton, Monticello, Utah; 
Thomas McCallie, Chattanooga, Tennes- 
see; Clarence McCauley, Fishersville, Vir- 
ginia; Robert Metcalf, USAF Academy, 
Colorado; Clyde Moore, Charlotte, North 
Carolina; Harry Phillips, Jackson, Missis- 
sippi; Cleon Sanders, Benson, North Car- 
olina; Kirby Smith, Ayden, North Caro- 
lina; Charles Sweat, Decatur, Georgia; 
Buddy Wiggs, Richmond, Virginia; James 
Williams, Richmond, Virginia; and Rob- 
ert Williams, Atlanta, Georgia. 

The school will conduct "A Day of 
Alumni Clinics" on Friday, June 2, 1961. 
This will be the second in what is hoped 
to be an annual event. Announcements 
and details will be mailed school alumni 
in the near future.

School of Nursing 

On March 1, 1961, Miss Harriette Pat- 
teson, graduate of the MCV school of 
nursing, became director of the associate 
degree program. With this appointment 
an interesting fact has come to light — the 
director of each of three programs under 
the auspices of the school of nursing is

an MCV alumnus. Of this, we in the 
school are justly proud. Analysis of facul- 
ty preparation further indicates that forty- 
one per cent of the present faculty of the 
two college programs are graduates of 
the MCV school of nursing. 

Alumnae faculty members holding mas- 
ter's degrees have attended the following 
institutions of higher learning: Western 
Reserve University, Columbia University, 
Boston University, University of Michi- 
gan, and the College of William and 
Mary. Of the total number of full-time 
nursing faculty, sixteen different under- 
graduate programs and twelve graduate 
programs are represented. 

The exchange of ideas and experiences 
which results from the coming together of 
persons representing a variety of educa- 
tional programs has meant a great deal to 
the success of the educational effort. The 
steadfastness of alumni members, how- 
ever, has been a source of continual sup- 
port and has served as an incentive for 
the progress we have made up to the 
present time. 

The contributions of alumni members 
could never be minimized and so we hope 
a steady flow of this important group 
will continue to be interested in faculty 



appointments. 

We are pleased that this year's gradu- 
ates will include forty-three from the 
baccalaureate degree program and twenty- 
four from the associate degree program. 
Doris B. Yingling, dean 

School of Physical Therapy 

We are happy to report that our two- 
year program leading to a bachelor of 
science in physical therapy is now firmly 
established and enrollment is on the 
upswing. We anticipate full enrollment 
of about fifty students for next year. 

Our new medical director, Dr. Freder- 
ick E. Vultee, brought new ideas into our 
curriculum and our administrative pro- 
cedures. We now have three well func- 
tioning committees — the Admissions Com- 
mittee, the Student Evaluation Committee, 
and a newly established Curriculum Com- 
mittee. Dean William F. Maloney and 
Dr. Frederick E. Vultee are members of 
these committees. With the assistance of 
Dr. Edwin F. Rosinski we have taken 
the first steps toward evaluating both the 
academic and clinical phases of the cur- 
riculum. 

A grant from the O.V.R. is used at the 
present time to make a study of the total 



group of alumni of our school, dating 
back to 1945. Information from this study 
will complete a report to the O.V.R. on 
the almost completed five-year grant to 
support the new two-year program. To 
make this project a successful one we wish 
to ask all our physical therapy alumni to 
please write to us if we do not have a 
correct mailing address. 

We hope the present year will be a 

happy and successful one for all of you.

Dietary Department 

Our dietetic interns have gotten back 
from a two-week vacation the last of 
February and are in their last days of the 
internship. We are in the midst of re- 
viewing applications for the '62 class. We 
would liked to have had more applicants; 
however, the ones we have are quite en- 
couraging. We will give the results in 
numbers after April 17th. 

The hospitals have all been full lately 
so the dietary staff is kept busy getting 
out over 3,000 meals per day to patients. 

We will keep you informed of inter- 
esting events through this media so keep 
up your membership with the alumni.

School of Medical 
Technology 

The first regional workshop for di- 
rectors and teaching supervisors of ap- 
proved schools of medical technology 
was held in Memphis, Tennessee, on 
March 10 and 11. The chief purpose of 
the meeting was to discuss the effects of 
the increased college requirements which 
will go into effect January 1, 1962. At 
this time a total of 90 semester hours 
will be required before a student can en- 
ter an approved school of medical tech- 
nology, leading to a bachelor's degree at 
the end of twelve months of training. 
Most of our students have met these re- 
quirements in the past and have received 
a B.S. degree in medical technology from 
the Medical College. 

The probability of training laboratory 
aides to help relieve the shortage of medi- 
cal technologists was discussed. These 
aides would be comparable to nurses' 
aides. 

Some of the other topics were Curricu- 
lum and Faculty Development, Teaching 
Technics and Modern Aspects of Instruc- 
tion, Student Evaluation and Examina- 
tions, Student Orientation and Roles of 
Directors and Teaching Supervisors in 
Approved Schools of Medical Technology. 
Our delegation represented the school and 
actively participated in the presentation.

THE SCARAB 



The 1 out of 20 
that didn't sret smoked 




T^here's a lot of satisfaction in pointing out some- 
thing good to a friend. That's why it sometimes 
happens that one cigarette out of a pack of Dual Filter 
Tareytons never does get smoked. 

People open it to show its remarkable Dual Filter 
containing Activated Charcoal. They may not know 
why it works so well, but they do know this : It brings 
out the best taste of the best tobaccos. Yes, Tareyton 
delivers the flavor . . . and the Dual Filter does it! /; 

Try a pack of Dual Filter Tareyton. We believe the 
extra pleasure they bring will soon have you passing 
the good word to your friends. 

NEW DUAL FILTER 



Product of 




Tareyton delivers the flavor . . . 
DUAL FILTER DOES IT! 

HERE'S HOW: 1. It combines a unique inner 
filter of ACTIVATED CHARCOAL . . . definitel y 
proved to make the taste of a ci g arette mild and 
smooth . . . 

2. with a pure white outer filter. Together they 
select and balance the flavor elements in the smoke. 
Tareyton's flavor-balance gives you the best taste 
of the best tobaccos.
